Prospectors Bar & Grill on Highway 395 opened in August 2004, and was quickly known around town as a restaurant that served big portions in a fun atmosphere. The “prospector” theme extended to all aspects of the log cabin-esque building, which made for an enjoyable family dining atmosphere.
The original owners sold the place in 2010, but bought it back in 2013 when the restaurant was flagging. They returned many of their old favorites to the menu, and backed up those flavors with the same executive chef they had before the restaurant sold in 2010.
Today, Prospectors Bar & Grill continues to serve the same giant portions that made them famous in the first place. That includes their burgers, one of which I recently tasted for myself.
Being so far North, Prospectors Bar & Grill is a heck of a drive for some people to make just for food (for example, if you live on the South Hill or in Spokane Valley). After eating there, though, I’d say it’s worth making the trip every once in a while.
If you’re interested in bison burgers (which I am, because bison is crazy delicious), they offer a 100% bison burger cooked to medium. I know what I’m getting next time.
